Have any of you dreamed of running away, of heading out to the highway, never looking back, and getting away from it all? Steve Garufi, author of “Under a Triumphant Sky: A Bike Across America Story”, had those dreams and fulfilled them by pedaling across America twice in 2008 and 2011.
At the Shuter Library of Angel Fire, Garufi will do a presentation with maps, photos, and his bicycle, while answering questions about what it’s like to ride cross-country and how to do it.
Hear the story about how his bicycle was stolen in Phoenix, Arizona one week into his first trip — and how he overcame.
Learn about how Steve “lost all sanity” when he had four flat tires — yes four! — in a single day in Mississippi.
Be inspired by stories of so many good people he encountered: friends who drove hundreds of miles to meet him on his route; to bike mechanics who refused to charge for their services; and strangers who give Garufi tours of their towns.
Signed copies of his book will be available for $15 after the event.
More information about Steve’s book can be found on Amazon.
